    Sept. 21, 2020 | Stephen Thompson -- We've been trying to make a BTS Tiny Desk concert happen for years now - even gaming out ways we might move Bob Boilen's desk far enough forward to accommodate the superstar Korean boy band's dance moves.
    In the end, it took a global pandemic - and the launch of Tiny Desk (home) concerts back in March - to make something happen. With BTS cooped up in Seoul, the group held true to the series's spirit by convening a live band for its Tiny Desk debut, and even arranged to perform in a workspace with a music-friendly backdrop: the record store VINYL & PLASTIC by Hyundai Card in BTS's hometown.
    Opening with this summer's inescapable "Dynamite" - the group's first single to hit No. 1 in the U.S., as well as its first song to be fully recorded in English - BTS leaned hard into the new track's celebratory, "Uptown Funk"-adjacent vibes. From there, the group dipped into its back catalog, seizing on the opportunity to showcase its quieter side while (mostly) staying uncharacteristically seated. The breezily propulsive "Save ME," from 2016, ultimately gave way to a full-on power ballad in 2017's reflective "Spring Day."
    The latter track seemed especially true to BTS's hopeful nature: Introduced with a few optimistic words from rapper and singer RM ("It's been the roughest summer ever, but we know that spring will come"), the song reflects on a need to wait out hard times, even as the weight of present-day pain feels oppressive.
    BTS had intended to spend 2020 delighting the BTS Army in arenas around the world, only to spend these last few months performing in isolation. Released on the last day of a grim season, "Spring Day" provides a nice reminder of what awaits us on the other side. We just have to get through fall and winter first.

      Tiny Desk fans: If you’re into hip-hop, then you know that it’s inherently protest music. Listen to our new podcast, Louder Than A Riot, to hear about the interconnected rise of hip-hop and mass incarceration. Through the stories of Bobby Shmurda to Nipsey Hussle, we’ll reveal how rhyme and punishment in America have always gone hand-in-hand. Check us out at:

      I’ve watched this video 1 month ago. I had never listened to BTS before and I just wanted to know who was cute guy with orange sunglasses and black mic. Now I call him little meow meow 😸. BTS brought so much joy to my days, I felt like a teenager again, so light, so happy!

      i applaud NPR for these safe concerts. i think we need safer concerts, especially for women and disabled people. as a once disabled person i know its impossible to attend concerts while disabled.

      1. Aidan Leonidas

        As far as i know, in BTS concert, they hv a special section for disabled, even they had sign language interpreter (Speak Yourself tour Seoul 2019) With the vast growing of the fandom, theres also twitter fanbase account for disabled, and deaf fans. I really wish in the future offline concert can accomodate and enjoyable for everyone.

      All I can hear is autotune. Regardless, they’re a talented bunch of dudes.

      1. S

        Actually, the first song had some pitch effects....but the last two songs had absolutely no autotune...after all, this is a tiny desk concert! It is meant to be sung live and have no autotune.... Anyways, thank you for appreciating them!💜

    40. shockalockabocka

      They’re singing but the mics are auto tuned. Can u not hear how robotic the output is?

      1. S

        The first song had some pitch effects but the last two songs had no autotune at is a tiny desk concert and it is meant to be sung live! Maybe it sounds like auto tune because their live singing is as great as their recordings!😉

      I'm a Directioner myself and I know BTS is so huge and everyone is crazy about them but I'm not into K-POP like most of Filipinos here in the Philippines and I didn't watch any videos of them but I have been listening to Dynamite and Life Goes On just March this year but I can't even remember their names from the comment section then I tried to watch their Carpool Karaoke video with James and then on I never stopped watching all their videos, discovering every bits and pieces of their history and learning how hard working and freaking talented they all are. I know I stan the right guys and I'm not even complaining. Never too late to be an ARMY I guess. 💜💜💜
